Park City's Temple Har Shalom, the new Reform Jewish synagogue, will play host to a new photo exhibit celebrating the 60th anniversary of the state of Israel beginning July 28.
"Israel @ 60 Years" will feature 60 images from the archives of the New York-based Magnum Photo Agency, illustrating "the miracle and mystery of Jewish history self preservation, resonance, suffering and renewal," according to a press release announcing the new exhibit.
Work by Robert Capa, Inge Morath, Leonard Freed, Patrick Zachman and other international photo journalists will be on display. The show will be open to the public on weekdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and by special appointment for weekend tours.
The exhibit is free, and the public is invited.
Publicist Hilary Nitka said she hopes people will come and "celebrate with Temple Har Shalom, and Jews around the world, the 60 years of Israel's existence, its struggles and triumphs, its tears and laughter. This is a chance to see the myriad faces and cultures of Israel through the eyes of these photographers that lived and worked during the turbulent, historical days of Israel's creation, as well as modern images of Israel with its diverse cultures."
The synagogue is located at 3700 N. Brookside Court (Highway 224) in Park City. Call 435-649-2276 for information.
